METALCON Hosting Metal Training Zone At 2023 Show

In an effort to continue metal’s decade-long trend of gaining roofing market share, METALCON is doing its part to develop more qualified metal roofing installers. The 2023 METALCON tradeshow floor will include a METALCON Training Zone, offering a hands-on learning opportunity for roofing contractors with any or no level of experience working with metal.

The 2023 show is scheduled for October 18-20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Show staff recently announced that booth space is being added again and attendee registration is more than double what it was last year.

“With exhibit and attendee numbers on the rise, this show provides us with a great opportunity to offer installation training to metal roofing installers,” says Judy Geller, Vice President of Trade Shows/METALCON. “Even more importantly, this training will be available to those with no experience with metal but are interested in adding metal roofing to their product line.”

The METALCON Training Zone will feature demonstrations and education using a variety of mock-ups and materials including painted steel, aluminum, zinc, copper and other natural metals. Training will focus on proper detailing and utilization of the right tools to enhance skills of contractors and remodelers, enabling them to deliver their best, most efficient and cleanest work when installing various metal roofing systems.

“We’re working out the schedule, but we’re planning on having continuous training all three days of the convention,” says John Sheridan, owner of Sheridan Tools and organizer of the METALCON Training Zone. “We’ll have mock-ups with several various details to work on and there will be training in English as well as Spanish. Roofing materials are coming from several generous manufacturers and Sheridan Tools will be providing tools for the METALCON Training Zone.” Among the manufacturers donating metal roofing materials for use in the METALCON Training Zone are Drexel Metals, McElroy Metal and VMZinc. The METALCON Training Zone is sponsored by Sherwin-Williams, which recently introduce its MetalVue program. The coating manufacturer has invested years in the development of MetalVue, a program that has evolved into an in-depth and comprehensive tool kit for contractors.
